Essentials by Ellen August Release Blog Hop



Hello, and welcome to the Essentials by Ellen August Release Blog Hop! You may have just come from the "mother" of all these adorable bears, ghosts, santas, etc. .... none other than Julie Ebersole! What a release she's created!! If not, feel free to start at the beginning with Adelina Starace.
 
We've got Halloween!
We've got Thanksgiving!
We've got Christmas!
We've got Bear Ware!!!!!

Want to take a peek?



Not only is there new Bear Ware, but there's an actual NEW BEAR! What?!


Isn't this little guy so cute taking the hand of mama bear (or on his own he'd be able to hold something up, like a birthday cake, or even this pie!) The pies included in this set are fun to use too ... says the person with the biggest sweet tooth ever. 


Having a wagon included in the Bear Ware 4 set is big-time ... all the different things you can put in it make it so versatile. Pets, kids, the top of the little bear, or just all the misc. die cuts from a set, like the gourds and leaves here. It's like a giant invitation to add more to your card.

The sentiment is from the Last Bite set, which is meant for Halloween (think vampires), but it totally fits here with the pies! And then I stamped a few "gobble, gobble's" by our cute little pie-eater. Finally, the border of the card is a strip I cut from the new Rustic Woodgrain background stamp, which you'll see more of later.


Next up is  an adorable Halloween set Happy Haunting with the cutest illustrations by Julie Ebersole. How darling are these two cuddly ghosts?! Just perfect for the sweet sentiment ... You're my Boo.


The Spiderwebs die is such a great addition as a background for any of your scary or cute Halloween scenes. Especially if you cut it with silver glitter paper!


And here's another look at that Rustnic Woodgrain background that you saw as a strip on the Bear Ware Thanksgiving card. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be using this one all the time!
 

Before we get to this card, can we just have a moment to applaud this sassy sentiment? Hahaha!! This sentiment, and the "You're My Boo" sentiment on the last card, are from Pumpkin to Talk About.

Aside from the cuddly ghosts, there are other cute creatures of the night in the Happy Haunting set like this little bat with the jack-o-lantern like grin. Give him a hat from this set, and a broom from the Bear Ware 2 set, and he's now a sassy witch.


The background was made by smooshing the Catherine Pooler inks on a stamping block and dropping water before pressing it onto a paper. The stamping block is what gives it that nicely uneven, but still controlled, rectangular shape. 


Added a few sequins and mounted the panel on a white card base. 


These are just two of the cute Halloween critters in the set ... be sure to check out the others!! And they also have coordinating solid colored stamps if you want to quickly color them in!


Finally, the Holiday Characters are just as cute as the Halloween characters, only there are a lot more of them! For this card I really wanted to give the illusion of a sleigh, so I stamped the presents on the card base first, layered a die cut of The Big Guy, and finally added the reindeer in front, pulling the sleigh.


Love how this looks like a sleigh scene, yet there is no illustration of a sleigh anywhere!


The sentiment is from Retro Holiday Greetings and it's just perfect for the outside OR inside of your card. Often the holiday sentiments I have are great for the outside of a card, but if they're just one line, or on the smaller size, they look a little lost on the inside of a card. This sentiment, along with seven others, take up a perfect amount of space on the inside. 


Here's another of the cute characters and another Retro Holiday Greeting ,,, certainly he's a "nice" elf. These Shipping Tags are also part of the release, and the good news is that they cut FOUR tags at once! This makes it so much easier for mass producing present tags, or even for individual tags to layer them up like on this one where I have a pink woodgrain tag beneath the elf. I always like to have two layers of tags for that extra bit of color and texture you can add. And any personal messages as well.


Again, be sure to check out the Holiday Characters set to see all the different characters included in the set.

  35. Great post. Articles that have meaningful and insightful comments are more enjoyable, at least to me. It’s interesting to read what other people thought and how it relates to them or their clients, as their perspective could possibly help you in the future.

    There's always something great to watch with Netflix or Amazon Prime Video. Choose from popular movies and full seasons of hit TV shows. Enjoy a wide variety of choices, including Action & Adventure, Comedy, Kids & Family, Documentaries, and more. Plus, there are never any commercials.

    While seeing generally, if you are looking for more content and entertainment, you can go for Hotstar. If you are always exploring something new to watch, you can go for Netflix. If you want to have the common ground between this two, you can opt for amazon prime.
